The Crew Connects Placement Program is designed to provide professional screen practitioners with credited employment in areas of critical need within the NSW screen industry.
Financed with the assistance of Screen Australia, the $400,000 program funds the placement of emerging crew members who are keen to upskill and advance their careers into roles for up to six months with screen businesses offering the relevant development opportunities.
The aim of the program is to address the shortage of highly skilled technical roles needed for the pipeline of production in NSW.
Funding is available for established production, post-production, VFX and animation companies to engage early to mid-career professional practitioners, to be employed in an area of demonstrable industry demand, within the company or on a production.
Placements can be up to a maximum of six months, providing the practitioner with a credit and valuable hands-on industry experience.
Screen NSW is committed to promoting and supporting gender equality, diversity and inclusiveness in the NSW screen industry. We will prioritise placements that will deliver greater diversity and equality in the industry and require applicants to demonstrate diversity and inclusion in their applications.
